What drew me into this Innisfree’s blush, was the three shades available. The three shades similarly had that natural pinkish blush look, which I find is great to use for an everyday wear. The colour payoff is not harsh and looks almost airy, when applied and blended out. I believe I bought 03, which reminds me of a softer barbie baby orange-pink. I like the applicator actually, it helps with spreading out the cream blush first, but I wouldn’t recommend just using it to blend it out. I would just use my fingers to evenly blend the blush, as I could control the areas I want to concentrate in and give it a more satin-like finish.
For only $13, this blush is a steal! You can easily build the intensity, it is non-sticky and has no fragrance that I can detect. It has a sheer shine to it, no glitters and specks which is a plus! So it looks great over foundation or on days when you’ve just got face lotion/suncreen on.
I am slowly building up this little collection of Innisfree’s cotton ink lip tints. I have been meaning to use lip tints more, just because of its natural finish look. For $16.10 you get 4g of lip tint and is available in 15 shades, I believe in the same colour palette. Mainly reds and browns.
I love the soft, flat-edge wand used, as it applies the shine essence oil-infused (camellia, mango seed, avocado, cotton seed oil) tint across the lips. I wonder how it would work on the cheeks mmm? Anyways, it feels moist, soft and non-drying once applied and has a slight fragrance to it. I would spread a tiny bit in the inner-most of my lips and then spread it out with my fingers. A little tint dabbed on, goes a long way! It is super pigmented so it lasts for a good 3-4 hours. Definitely buildable and once dried, it does not smudge. Non-sticky too! The finish is matte, with subtle shine.

The texture of this lip gloss, is silky smooth and definitely ‘juicy’. A little is required and I suppose it would depend on what you eat/drink, but it would last for a good hour or two. It’s super compact, so you can easily have it on the go.
Nourishing due to the mixture of its quantity and enriching essence. It has collagen to assist with moisturising your lips, transforming your chapped lips to a more youthful appearance and feel. It does recommend apply it 20 minutes before jumping under the sun, as it contains UV protection. The only criticism I have about this product, is that it claims to ‘plump lips’. I think it just gives the illusion due to the gloss overlay, but overall I quite like how its non-sticky, no scent and the clear sheen it provides.

Don’t you love pops of yellow and against black? It provides the ‘edgey’ feel but at the same time, combining it with youth. That’s what I felt this mascara gave, when applying. The handle I found is perfect, great for people like me who has a unsteady hand.
Super buildable, this mascara delivers a light-weight black finish and swiftly separates your lashes. I find that the texture of rubber-like, which allows the lashes to truly open. It is formulated with silk protein, protecting and maintaining your eyelashes health. I do enjoy wearing this during the day or a simple day/night out, just because it looks natural. I love how it doesn’t transfer and it is perfect for sensitive eyes, well for me in any case.
To point out, I like the wand because of its arch. With the arch I can lift my lashes whist coating. For a price this affordable, I highly recommend!

I incorporate this blush pen, on days when I generally wear minimal make-up. I love to just dab it on top of a plain strobe cream to give my cheeks a bit of colour. The colour on my skin, almost looks like a metallic light pink and has that extra glow, but quite natural. I would dab a line of my desired areas, and further pat it in with my fingers to blend. The liquid that comes out, is non-sticky and is light-weight.
I have never heard of this brand, but I am loving this blush pen! Super easy to use, eliminating the process of getting a sponge/brush to apply the blush. You only need 2-3 clicks and out comes with liquid. It lasts throughout the day, and it is build-able. With about 19 shades to choose from, I think I am getting myself another pen!
